Freeware software is herewith defined as computer software developed for the public domain and for personal use only and for non-money making use, to which no charge is associated at all and which has absolutely no commercial purpose. Freeware software - if made available for use to any 3rd party - must be free of charge, for an unlimited time.

This freeware version of BASS.NET is free for non-money making use. If you are not charging for or making any money with your software AND you are an individual person (not a corporation) AND your software is intended for personal use only, then you can use the BASS.NET API in your software for free.
Free in this case means, that the LICENSEE can use BASS.NET without any further license fees. It does NOT mean that you are free to change, copy, redistribute, share or use BASS.NET in any purpose.

If you wish to use BASS.NET in shareware or commercial software (or your software has any other commercial purpose, e.g. advertising, training etc.), you will require another license which is NOT covered by this license agreement.

This license agreement is ONLY valid for freeware software.

BASS.NET is the property of radio42 and is protected by copyright laws and international copyright treaties. BASS.NET is not sold, it is licensed. The LICENSOR represents that it has all of the rights necessary to grant to the LICENSEE the rights set forth in this license agreement, subject to the terms set forth below regarding BASS and MP3 technology.

Permitted use and restrictions

This license agreement allows the LICENSEE to use BASS.NET in any of his FREEWARE products.

By using this software, you agree to the following conditions:
